Course Objectives

The master degree programme in Physics is designed to provide graduates with an excellent scientific grounding, a good command of scientific methodology, sound knowledge of new technologies and the capacity to use advanced methods and sophisticated tools to tackle and resolve a diverse range of problems.

The master's degree programme in Physics equips students with solid training in classical and modern physics, a good command of methods of scientific investigation, thorough knowledge of mathematical tools, modern measurement tools and data analysis techniques, a firm grasp of computer support tools, and advanced training in the spheres of theoretical and experimental physics.

The goal is to prepare graduates to carry out scientific research autonomously, work with a high degree of autonomy, assume positions of responsibility in projects and facilities, apply their specialist knowledge to the modelling of complex systems in the fields of applied sciences, and possess the necessary knowledge basis to teach Physics in secondary schools.

Career and Employment

Particularly pertinent career opportunities include:

  • scientific research in universities in Italy and abroad
  • scientific research in public and private research bodies in Italy and abroad
  • scientific and technological research and its industrial applications
  • high-level diffusion of scientific knowledge, with particular reference to the theoretical, experimental and applied aspects of classical and modern physics
  • the promotion and development of scientific and technological innovation.

The master's degree programme in Physics is also designed to hone the aptitudes in physical and mathematical modelling initially acquired by students during the foundation courses of the degree programme, which can also prove a valid resource for occupations not directly connected with physics.

The course also prepares graduates to work in diverse sectors of the industry, the work sphere and in scientific education.
